Published on: 24th July 2023

Gibsons Games is delighted to welcome Tabitha Ward as sales manager, to lead its UK Sales team.

Previously Sales director at Abrams & Chronicle, Tabitha was the driving force behind the company’s gift sales, recruiting and managing a team of specialist field agents and selling a wide range of brands including Galison, Ridley’s Games and Games Room alongside licensed puzzles and games from Lego, Disney, Marvel and Star Wars to its key accounts.

Amanda Chaplin, commercial director at Gibsons, commented: “We are pleased to welcome Tabitha to the team. Tabitha’s extensive background and knowledge in the toy and publishing industries will undoubtedly drive our UK sales to new heights. We’re looking forward to seeing the positive impact she will make at Gibsons, particularly in the run up to Q4.”

Tabitha said: “I couldn’t be happier to be joining the team. The Gibsons catalogue is one that I’ve long admired for setting a market-leading standard in puzzles and games. Having been a family-owned and run British business for over 100 years, the company’s experience and expertise really shines through in the design and quality of its products. On a more personal level, the fantastic work the team has done in reducing its environmental impact, removing plastic from products and making strides towards becoming carbon neutral and B-Corp certified are all initiatives that resonate strongly with me.”

Last month, Gibsons welcomed Gemma Briant as Marketing manager; heading up the marketing team to help the family-owned games and puzzles company with its ambitious plans.
